If You’re Not Writing, You’re Resisting

Tweet For a few years now, my husband told me. My business coach did too. Everyone told me I was wasting my time on paid writing work that didn’t fill my soul. But it’s hard when you’re freelancing and getting paid. It’s hard to say, “No” when you don’t know when your next big check will…

The Courage in Vulnerability

Tweet Brené Brown is an expert on everything related to vulnerability. I’ve taken two of her online courses and listened to her SoundsTrue podcast recently. I’m admittedly a big huge fan. Perhaps, it’s because I’m all too familiar with shame. It sits on my shoulder every time I publish a post, conduct a workshop/meetup or submit my…

Why I Write

Tweet It’s taken me years to curate enough courage to admit the secret I’ve always known.

Spilling the Beans…

Tweet Okay, I’ve been keeping a secret for WAY too long. It’s been eating me up inside… But I think I can finally share at least one of them. Here’s what it’s not… I didn’t write a book. {Though I hope one day I can reveal a secret like that one.} I’m not quitting freelancing.…

Bye Bye Borders

Tweet photo via pinterest I spent “last Friday night” doing something a whole lot more conservative than Katy Perry. I got my hair done and had dinner with my husband.
